Be Careful What You Blog For

But every so often, something unexpected happens and a broader discussion ensues.
Schackner, ''Freedom of speech redefined by blogs'' -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

It's amazing how out of hand some of the simplest things can become. Blogging seems innocent enough, but it can easily become a problem. It all comes down to the topics chosen and how they are portrayed. According to the article, there usually are not many problems. However, every once in a while, bloggers have run into trouble thanks to what they had written in their blog entries. This is why it is best to exercise caution and truly think about the topic and tone of the entry. Though it may be wise to avoid any topics that can cause controversy, controversy isn't always a bad thing. In certain cases, controversy can lead to a much needed change. On a much happier note, blogging can also be harmless: used as an educational tool or even just a form of expression. So all in all, it all comes down to the way in which the blogging is done.
